1pound tempeh, cut into 4 pieces
2garlic cloves, minced
1tablespoon peeled and minced fresh ginger
2tablespoons tamari or other soy sauce
1tablespoon dry sherry
1 teaspoon sugar
1teaspoon peanut oil

2cups broccoli florets, lightly steamed until crisp-tender

1. Place the tempeh in a medium-size saucepan with water to cover, bring to a simmer, and cook for 10 min. Drain the tempeh and place in a shallow bowl.
2.In a small bowl, combine the garlic, scallions, ginger, tamari, sherry, and sugar. Pour over the tempeh and marinate for 1 hour in the refrigerator.
3.Heat the oil in a large skillet or wok over medium high heat. Remove the tempeh from the marinade, reserving the marinade. Add the tempeh to the hot skillet and cook until lightly browned on both sides, about 2 minutes total. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.
